    Re: SEC Football Discussion Thread

    These coaching searches bring up a good question: which is the better job, Auburn or Tennessee? If you think about it, they are pretty close. They have close to the same amount of money, which is a whole lot. Auburn has better recruiting areas, but you don't have to constantly compete with Alabama for recruits at Tennessee(for the most part). History doesn't really play a factor, for both teams have won several SEC Championships and each have had many great teams and coaches over the years. Both have big, rabid fanbases. Both have million dollar facilities. Auburn is in the worst year in their history, while Tennessee has not been to a bowl in 3 years, so it is fair to say both teams are down. Which one is it?

    Not knowing anything about the facilities or pay or anything else, I'd say Tennessee solely because you aren't competing against Alabama for the hearts and minds of the people in your state. Tough call, though.

    If the recruit is on the fence, I'd drive him around Knoxville and the Smokies and see if that doesn't seal the deal. There's not much around Auburn, AL except cow pastures

    Clearly you've never actually been to Auburn.

    More SEC domination.

    Being a U-Tenn alum, I looked at their situation and if the football program profited $35 mill in a down year where they didn't sellout games, why are they worried about a Derek Dooley buyout of a few mill?

    5-star defensive tackle Lavon Hooks signs with Ole Miss....

    http://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/new...miss-football/

    Ole Miss, Auburn and Mississippi State were his final three choices, and he tried to sign with Auburn, but an issue with an English class couldn't be worked out.

    "There was a class the institution didn't accept, so I couldn't get admitted to Auburn," said Hooks, who added the class in question wasn't one he took at Northeast Mississippi. "The SEC accepted it, but the institution didn't. Ole Miss and Mississippi State accepted it."

    Reports coming out that Tyler Bray will enter NFL draft. Maybe just speculation, not sure.

    With a projected weak QB draft class, I'm inclined to believe it. His two best receivers and best lineman will also be gone next year. Factor in a new coach/system and it really doesn't make much sense to stay.

    Gus Malzahn's coaching staff is shaping up to be a force both recruiting-wise and talent-wise.

    They just hired Rodney Garner away form Georgia to coach the DL. He joins DC Ellis Johnson and secondary coach Charlie Harbison as the nucleus of a defensive coaching staff comprised of highly respected coaches who are also known to be exceptional recruitors in the Southeast.

    Malzahn's growing staff seems poised to be an even more effective recruiting force than the Chizik staff which continually landed top ten classes. I doubt there are many offensive targets that Gus can't get. Defensively, these guys can both flat out coach and recruit with the best of them.

    The SEC had better watch out....the Tigers are coming for you.

    Since we're bragging...

    One school in the country has appeared in the last two NCAA Tournaments in men's and women's basketball and baseball and also appeared in bowl games in those two seasons.

    One school in the entire world of NCAA Division 1 athletics.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.
